Government space bucks are landing people! Commence stimulation!

Yes, I paid my taxes like I said I would.

Then I bought Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition (all DLC on disc!) on sale at Best Buy for $25.

Can I have my CAG card back now please?

Yep we got $3400 today

Apparently today is the "official" release of PSO2 on Xbox One, and the PC version is out in May. You can transfer your progress between the Xbox and PC version. That's kind of disappointing though. Because, they said that we are getting everything that the Japanese game has, but reading on Reddit from people who play the Japanese version, we are actually a few years behind when it comes to the content of the game.

I am happy the stimulus payment finally arrived, but I need my unemployment payments to start. I applied over 3 weeks ago and still nothing. Florida's system is so shit.

I know that the Wiki page went away, but wasn't there another page we found that listed the GWG outside the US?

The list maintained by the community is here (and also in GGP's signature).  I've been maintaining it recently, and I watch the other regions' GwG pages for any differences, but I won't notice those differences until those regions update their page (starting tomorrow).

I'm actually enjoying the free JRPGs. They are easy achievements for the 50 Bing points.

SIX min WHISTLE

I haven't heard anythign about my stimulus yet, though I'm still working so I'm not worried about it. I don't plan on blowing it all though, since stuff will still not be normal for quite a while. I'll probably buy a couple cheap things at most. Hopefully I never need it and it'll be my Series X fund.

 

The campaign in Gears was very off-putting. Making 2/3 of the game open world made me feel like I was missing out on so much of the story if I didnt scour every nook & cranny of the game world. Felt like a cheap way to extend the game and just didnt feel like Gears. Plus, the major part of the story that happened just before the end. I did NOT like that. Turning Gears into an rpg lite game, wtf.

I can see how it could seem that way but the exploration stuff doesn't really lead to a lot of story content. Usually it's just "Shit, there are Swarm/Locust/DeeBees here!" in the locations you find. The main incentive to explore are Jack Upgrades and finding the secret relic weapons. I've said it before but the big open levels in 5 really felt like Halo 1 (and 3) cranked up, where you can explore these big levels at your own pace and in whatever order you want.

 

I really don't get the RPG lite comparisons I've seen, even before your mention here. There is one real choice in the game, and an upgrade tree for Jack.

You can check stimulus stuff on the IRS site here: https://www.irs.gov/...impact-payments

 

I had to do my bank info again for a direct deposit.

The Long Dark is a really good survival game where you have to find shelter, scavenge and hunt for food and gear and also to craft while exploring the wild north in a post apocaliptic setting.

The sanbox mode is worth it by itself, but they also have an episodic story mode going.

Got my stimulus money and gave some of it to WHO and giving my Bing earnings (from one of my accounts) to the CDC. I Feel I did this because I am a little bit older and mature and feel the need to help others...But also because there are no goddamn physical game deals right now. Seriously; Best Buy, Amazon and all ya'll slightly step your game up.

Best Buy is where I got Tomb Raider, so they got something going

I Got the steelbook version of Shadow of the Tomb Raider with all the DLC last year for $20 at Target. So it's a good deal, but I already got mines last year. Then again I also don't know if it's the effects of having GPU or me basically buying 163 games last year as well.

Renegade and Crash n the Boys Street Challenge are in there also, would have been better if we got the full 18 game localized package for $39 like PS4 and Switch, instead of half of it for $35 piecemeal. Then they'll say these don't sell on Xbox.

Yeah, I don't even get it. Kunio Collection is already on Xbox One (I have the Hong Kong version) and they just chopped up that collection for the US release.

 

Edit: Ok, it's been over 30 years at this point and I can safely say that the start of Mission 4 on the NES Double Dragon 1 is one of the most bullshit things ever in a videogame. I have no idea how I figured out this goddamn pattern as a kid.

Yeah, I was gonna buy the Double Dragon Collection, but now that it's chopped up separate downloads I'm going to pass. Might get it on PS4 instead.

They got Borderlands 3 for $14.99 for the DOTD at Bestbuy,  I'm still holding out for a great deal on the digital super deluxe or a GOTY edition.

Saw that. I seem to remember very mixed feelings and mediocre performance, but definitely caught my eye.

That's a pretty good deal. I picked up the regular during one of the recent digital sales. Played through as Moze & Flak so far.

I've heard there are still problems with it on X1X, but I haven't had any problems on my X1S.
